Police are warning householders in Bradley Stoke to make sure their properties are secure following two burglaries on Great Meadow Road last night (Wednesday 13th/Thursday 14th April), including one in which the homeowner was threatened by an intruder.
The first incident is reported to have taken place just after 4.30am at a property on Great Meadow Road. A male gained access to the property and threatened the homeowner before stealing a number of items. He then left the property.
The second incident also took place on Great Meadow Road, between 10pm yesterday and 5.30am this morning. Here, an unknown offender entered the property and stole a number of items.
The Journal understands that small electronic items, including a laptop, a tablet computer and a smart watch were among the things stolen, along with a wallet and a purse. Some of the items believed to have been stolen were later found discarded in the street, according to one local resident.
Sources locally say there have been several other burglaries in the area over the last few days, but this has not been confirmed by the police.
A spokesperson for Avon and Somerset Police said:
“Our investigation is at an early stage but we have conducted house to house enquiries and we would ask anyone with information to contact us now on 101.”
“We would advise all residents to make sure their properties are secure before going to bed – this includes all doors and windows. Make sure you remove all valuable items from sight.”
